Book Trailer: The Bone Season

About to graduate from Oxford, 21-year-old Shannon is already tipped to become the next big thing in sci-fi and fantasy. Serkis, who's picked up the rights through his Imaginarium production outfit, calls the novel “truly, extraordinary and thrilling”.

Set in 2059, it follows the life of 19-year-old Paige Maloney who works in the criminal underworld of Scion London. Her job is to scout information by breaking into people’s minds. She is a dreamwalker, a clairvoyant. In her world, she commits treason simply by breathing.

Her life quickly changes when she is kidnapped and taken to Oxford – a city kept secret for two hundred years and controlled by an otherworldly race. Assigned a Warden, Paige must allow herself to be nurtured if she is to survive this prison.

The Bone Season will be published by Bloomsbury on Tuesday 20 August. Check out the trailer below, or find out more on the official site and on the book's Facebook page .
